Play Online Video Poker On Canadian Sites

Just about everyone realizes that they can play poker online, but did you also know that you can play online video poker? There are full Internet casinos that offer games such as slots, roulette, craps, blackjack, and of course video poker. You can practice for free, or even deposit and gamble with real money. There are hundreds of casinos on the Internet, available to people from all over the world (including Canadian sites).

You can deposit money into your account at nearly every gambling site by using Visa or MasterCard, and many also accept eChecks, eWallets, and PayPal. Withdrawal methods are usually done via bank wire, physical check, or refunding money to the deposit eWallet you used. These methods are accepted to those who play online video poker, blackjack, or any other game. The odds of winning online are a little tighter than live casinos, though the virtual gaming sites certainly aren't cheating anyone. You just have to do a little research and find a reputable company before embarking on your Internet gambling quest.

Most of the gaming sites stick to the basics, only offering traditional games, including: Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Double Bonus, Double Double Bonus, Joker, and Pickem poker. Most of the pages offer between five and 20 total games, with single and multi-hand play available. The payouts are up to 99.54% when you play online video poker games like Jacks or Better, and that's a fair payout. Many slot machines pay out 95% or worse.

Also, 99% of these Internet casinos offer a "sign up bonus" to entice new players to try their titles. These rewards are often a percentage match on the size of an initial deposit, such as 100% up to $500 bonus. In that case, for every dollar you deposit up to $500, you will receive one dollar of extra money. The catch with these benefits is that you have to "clear" them before you can withdraw money. That means you'll have to wager the total amount (deposit plus sign-up) 20 to 50 times before the bonus is yours to keep. Of course, you can always withdraw your initial deposit at any time.
